I think it’s time for a little bit of reader participation out here. (People, I see you. You’re not a very chatty bunch, but I know you’re out there.)
Anyway, listen. Last week was Fall Toy Fair in Dallas, and do you know who was there? The Wiggles! Possibly to promote their latest DVD, I don’t know. (I wasn’t there. I am but the lowly Toy Box Mommy, and if I go off to these sorts of events, chances are excellent that the Toy Box Children will eat nothing but breakfast cereal until I returned with the mighty power of my maternal glare and “You know, there are starving children in Darfur who would kill for that fish stick, kid.”)
Now, anyone who knows the story of Ty’s Toy Box knows that it all started with the Wiggles, long ago. And now they have Wiggles merchandise along with a billion other licensed lines, but the Wiggles, people, they’re the reason Ty Simpson got started on this.
Anyway. As I was saying, last week: Fall Toy Fair, The Wiggles… and then guess what happened. Go on, guess!
That’s right. Ty and his lovely wife Heather finally got to meet the gang, rub elbows, and pose for this picture while doing that very! excited! hand thing that scares me a little. They all look really happy, though.
So here’s what I’m thinking: This photo is crying out for a caption. I mean, really. I took my shot at it in the title of this post, but I know some of you can do better. (Especially those of you who actually see Ty on a regular basis. C’mon. You know you want to.)
Go on. Title that photo. I bet if we come up with something really good, Ty will hang it on his wall. (Right, Ty? Ty? Hey, where are you going…?)
